The proprietor, "Noddy", went out of his way to assist with every request. He even dropped us at the bus stop in his private vehicle at no charge, at what was an unusually early hour. I cannot speak too highly of this place. We were treated like friends, rather than customers. If you are looking for a place to stay in Picton, South Island, look no further. A huge nod to Noddy and his wife. Superb.
Hometown comfort, clean and exceptional service!”
This place is an amazing place to stay. We were in the 2 bedroom suite. Very clean, spacious, beautiful interior design and amazing harbour view. The reception is incredibly attentive and welcoming. Will return 100%. Thank you Harbour view Motel.
Harbour View NOT Harbour Edge”
Don't be deceived by the pictures, this motel is about a quarter mile from the harbor shore. If you are walking from the ferry or train station, it is a walk of several city blocks and about 20 minutes. Once you arrive at they motel, it is situated on a bluff overlooking the harbor (although not next to the harbour), and you have to drag luggage up a very steep incline. The hotel is overpriced for the furnishings. The lower rooms share a deck with dividers, so if someone is smoking outside, you will experience their smoke. The rooms are large and very clean, but the furnishings are cheap and minimal. The beds in our room showed indentations and were lumpy. Diane, at check-in, was very friendly and offered us a small bottle of milk for our tea and coffee. In addition, she gave us a ride to the train station because it was raining heavily at our departure. A MAJOR NEGATIVE is check out is at 10 AM. The train station doesn't even open its' doors until noon! Not a place for an extended
1 night in Picton”
Harbour View Motel is just a walking distant to the city center and the only supermarket in town. If you are a sport fan, there are plenty of Sport channels. The only issue is the shower water pressure which is a pity.
Clean, great views & location”
We were in Picton for just a short period to catch the ferry the next day to Wellington. We chose this hotel because of its location, but also wanted a clean modern room with great views, and sure enough, we got what we wanted. The rooms were clean, lots of cooking supplies and the views on the balcony was great. The staff/owner also dropped us off at the Ferry terminal the next morning. The hotel is walking distance to town and hiking trail, although Picton is a very small town. High water pressure. Good value for money. CONS: Parking is tight with limited space. There are 2 buildings. Some rooms have better views that others. Free wifi but kept getting disconnected.
Very clean and nice”
We stopped over in Picton to catch the ferry up North the following day. The greeting we received at Harbour View Motel was warm and friendly. The room was very clean and very thoughtfully set up. The amenities were very nice as well. The only problem we experienced was one of the window couldn't be closed properly and the room became drafty for our daughter who was sleeping on the sofa bed which was next to the window.

What a great start to our road trip of the south island- million dollar views- get the seaview rooms. Superclean rooms and the management are great people- very friendly. If you get a chance go for a day trip to Lochmara Bay via boat it was great fun
Amazing views, strategic location”
My husband and I loved our stay in the Harbour View Motel. We got a room on the top floor, the view was astonishing. The room was clean and comfortable, they thought about everything, including a small table and chairs outside to have a glass of wine and enjoy the afternoon. The kitchen is small but has everything you need to cook a meal (we were tired of fried food so we cook steak and vegetables). Convenient place to park the car in front of the room. Walking distance to the grocery store, the bay, and the ferry terminal. The location was perfect. I recommend staying at this place if you are visiting Picton.
Good value for money”
Good value for mone
Although everything was nice we believe it was a converted garage
This was a great place to stay in Picton. The room was great with a small kitchenette which is handy. We had a really nice deck with wonderful view of Picton Harbor. It was a 5 minutes walk to get into the town and some nice shops and restaurants and groceries. Also so convenient to catch boat out to Queen Charlotte Track for great hiking. also Only a 30 mins to Havlock for some wonderful mussels. Don’t miss this hotel.
Checkin was quick and easy, our room (and bathroom) was spotless and the view was incredible! Excellent value for money. The only downside was the shower... the water pressure was way too light/soft so forget about washing your hair.
WOW beautiful view from every room”
As advertised the view was spectacular. Couldn't rate the staff as we never saw them As we arrived and left out of office hours . This was not a problem though as everything was ready for us obviously very good though as the motel and garden areas are very well maintained. Very neat and clean and well positioned.
Wonderful views from spacious spotless apartment ”
We had 2 wonderful nights here and loved it. Very spacious rooms and handy parking on site but might be tricky to squeeze into your allocated spot. Well equipped kitchen, lovely shower and marvellous views from the balcony. We were on top floor and had views for two sides of our room as it was the end one. All very clean and so handy for town, restaurants, bars and fish and chips! Much better than many in the town.
Great location and hosts”
Our room was spacious, clean and within walking distance of main town areas. The owners/managers were extremely helpful when my husband lost the key to our rental car. They made calls for us and went out of their way to calm the situation. Very grateful for their assistance. Yes he found the key!
Best Hotel/Motel Service on our Trip to NZ”
Of all the hotels we stayed at on our recent trip to NZ, Harbour View stood out. The lodging is only about 5 minutes from the InterIslander Ferry site. Caryn, the owner was kind enough to even pick us up since we didn't know exactly where the motel was located. Saved 40.00 on taxis because each hotel room in Wellington & Auckland we needed to take a taxi! The hospitality and cleanliness of the room was fantastic especially after our stays at certain hotels in the cities just mentioned. The experience brought up a lot of youthful memeories. Thanks Caryn & Noddy for the hospitality!
Very clean and has all the amenities you need. View from the balcony was beautiful. It is a modern apartment so lacking in quaintness if that is what you are seeking. However, if you want a clean and functional place to stay in a central location, it's perfect.
Good location to begib the Queen Charlotte Track”
The appeal of this accommodation was the closeness to where we caught the Cougar Line water Taxi to the start of our 5 day tramp. In addition to this it was great to be shown to our room by, who I assume was, one of the owners who explained how to use the TV and where to find the access code for the wifi. The motel was in easy walking distance to the main street where we went for dinner and breakfast
2 X 2 nights before and after the Queen Charlotte Trek”
Very convenient location - 3 mins into town and the pier. Great view of the harbour from the rooms/balconies. Good place just to lounge in for a day after the trek but the vineyards are only half an hour down the road. Deluxe rooms don't offer a great deal more than the others.
Very convenient and beautiful view”
The room was spacious with a fully equipped kitchenette. Very comfortable stay to explore Marlborough from. Parking was pretty narrow, can see might be some problems for larger cars but nothing a few negotiations won't solve. Would recommend it!
